by Mae Williams for Men's Fashion, men's grooming, Salon News

Just like keeping your body fit and trim,  your hair and scalp is equally important. It is what everyone sees first. It is what frames your face.  Just for starters, your hair and skin are the first to show what your are lacking in your diet.  As a stylist, I am here to tell you to eat healthier and to try to add some of the foods listed below into your daily food routine. I am going to suggest the 80/20 rule. Try to eat healthy Monday through Friday and have fun on the weekend.

List of foods: Salmon, chicken, walnuts, oysters, eggs, sweet potatoes, spinach, and  oranges and berries

" We are what we eat." Salmon is rich in protein, vitamin D and full of omega-3's. All are helpful in hair growth and preventing itchy. dry scalp. Chicken is a protein that is rich in zinc, iron and vitamin B, which helps with hair growth and luster. Walnuts & egg are rich in biotin. If your body is depleted, it can contribute to hair loss. Eggs are loaded with  iron, selenium & sulfur. This helps to nourish and bring oxygen to the hair follicles which slows down hair loss.  Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin A which helps in preventing itchy, dry scalp. Spinach has iron, folate & vitamin C which help to maintain hair follicles and healthy scalp. Kale and broccoli are also great and nutrient rich for scalp and hair. Blueberries  and oranges are packed with vitamin C help to aid in circulation for the scalp. And just for kicks, take a selfie  of your face and hair now. Try eating healthier for the next two weeks and then take another selfie at the end of two weeks. Your face, scalp and hair should have a healthier glow.
